The Biology of Uterine Fluid: How it Informs the Fetus of Mom's World[Jun 23, 2017]

A developing fetus bathes in a mixture of cellular secretions and proteins unique to its mother's uterus. Before fertilization, the pH of uterine fluid helps create a conducive environment for sperm migration, and afterward, its volume supports the embryo as it implants onto the wall of the uterus. Recent evidence suggests that uterine fluid may play another key role in embryonic development: communicating the mother's outside conditions to the fetus, so that the latter can prepare accordingly.

Scientists Advance Photosynthesis Using Conjugated Polymer Nanoparticles[Jun 23, 2017]

In natural photosynthesis systems, chloroplasts containing photoreactive elements are the critical organelles. Recently, a research group led by Prof. WANG Shu at Institute of Chemistry of Chinese Academy of Sciences (ICCAS) reported that a new bio-optical hybrid photosynthesis system with enhanced photosynthetic activity by using conjugated polymer nanoparticles (CPNs).

Extremely Rare and Weird Blind Fish Found in South China Cave[Jun 23, 2017]

An international team of scientists has found a fish known to be among the most elusive and strangest in the world. This cave-dwelling creature, which has several oddities, is "the most bizarre freshwater fish, and one of the rarest in the world," said ZHAO Yahui, a zoologist with the Chinese Academy of Sciences and member of the search team, in a statement. No ecological data exists and other records also are extremely sparse. Just two of these fish have been preserved in museum collections.

USTC Reveals Epigenetic Regulatory Mechanism on Cutaneous T cell Lymphoma[Jun 23, 2017]

Prof. QU Kun's group at University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) of Chinese Academy of Sciences in collaboration with Prof. Howard Chang and Dr. Youn Kim at Stanford Medical School for the first time revealed the mechanisms of the epigenetic regulation of cutaneous T cell lymphoma (CTCL), contributing to precise medical suggestions for patients with CTCL.

The 9.2 ka Event in Asian Summer Monsoon Area: Strongest Millennial Scale Collapse of the Monsoon During the Holocene?[Jun 23, 2017]

A large number of climate reconstructions reveal a climatic pattern far from stable throughout the Holocene, with a series of Decalogue-to-centennial scale abrupt climate events, which are recorded by the δ18O records from Greenland ice cores, the North Atlantic drift ice records, the tropical-subtropical monsoonal records and so on. The most prominent feature of these dramatic climate events is the rapid onset and end within a few decades. The investigating in characteristic and mechanism of these rapid climate events could help us understanding the unstablity of the global climate system and evaluate the risk of abrupt climate changes in the future warming word.
